Came on a week night with a couple of co-workers while in the area for work. We were seated right away and had the flaming saganaki appetizer which was delicious. I had the Shrimp Saganaki and my friends had the Gyro platters and we all really enjoyed our meals. The service was a bit spotty, we had to chase our... More

We loved the setting in Yboe City. We were there for lunch and to have an authentic Greek Salad. We were not disappointed. Plenty of good food for a reasonable price. All the dishes we saw come out from the kitchen were big and looked very good. It's also a fun people watching spot if you are outside or by... More

Great place to sit outside, have a few drinks & food was excellent. Ordered red pepper hummus & gyro sandwich & Greek wrap which was all very good. Nice place to chill & relax.

Ybor City is not really known for quality cuisine. It's a tourist destination for cruise ship passengers and Tampa visitors. The concept is a mini Key West without the scandal. Acropolis is a decent restaurant, actually better than decent. An innovative menu, a good staff and dedication to Greek cuisine. Stop by the Cuban old lady down the street for... More

We were amazed with the freshness, quality, and taste of everything we were served. The bread served after we ordered our lunch was fresh and tasty. The house made spread served with it was extremely flavorful, unlike any I have ever had before. The house salad continued with the fresh and tasty thread, with large quarters of the freshest and...

My friend and I both work at a fast-Greek place and so when we came here we were kind of comparing things. Their more put-together items like spanakopita- really really good. Their falafels, which I got in a wrap were pretty okay. Good quality greens and probably great salads, I didn't order one. AMAZING tzatziki. Gyro meat looked good but... More

We stop in here every time we are in town. Great spot for lunch or dinner. The service is great and very prompt. The atmosphere is awesome with a very Greek feel including napkin throwing! The fried octopus appetizer is delicious and I usually don't even like octopus! This place will not disappoint you! They also have a few locations... More

Ate here with some coworkers and enjoyed what we got.  I ordered the spinach dip and they ran out of dip so I just got the mataza type bread (at a 70 percent discount) and it was very good.  Most of my coworkers got the Greek Meatballs which they enjoyed.  Service was good but if you sit outside be prepared...

It would take me 10 visits at least to taste all the wonderful choices on the menu! I could make a meal or three just from the appetizers! Knowledgeable and friendly waitstaff and very authentic flavors. Go with an appetite and friend who like to share dishes to make the most of your visit. Live music and a little entertainment...

I had an amazing experience at the Acropolis in Ybor City. First, the waiter was absolutely wonderful. He was attentive and made sure we were well taken care of. The food came out quickly and it was very good. I highly recommend this place for lunch.
